Zack Mayo is an aloof, taciturn man who aspires to be a navy pilot.

Once he's arrived at training camp for his 13-week officer's course, Mayo runs afoul of abrasive, no-nonsense drill sergeant Emil Foley.

Mayo is an excellent cadet, but a little cold around the heart. Foley rides Mayo mercilessly, sensing that the young man would be prime officer material if he weren't so self-involved.

Zack's affair with working girl Paula is likewise compromised by his unwillingness to give of himself.

Only after Mayo's best friend Sid commits suicide over an unhappy romance does Zack come out of his shell and mature into a real man.
